Jarret Jack feels strongly about his improved development has nothing to do with playing with CP3 and his response was a little too bluntly stated if you ask me. If there was video of this statement, maybe the context would be interpreted differently.
Jarrett Jack has been incredible of late, and he was much better than “14 points, four assists” against the Celtics might lead you to believe. When Boston was staging a late comeback, Jack self-assuredly steered the team towards a safe spot for cruise control…
…It appears almost like Jack has basketball figured out, like he perceives the correct decision amid the noise and scrum. And it wouldn’t feel entirely abnormal to watch Chris Paul exhibit such effortlessly smart offense, but this is a bench player we’re talking about. Speaking of CP3, I asked Jack whether playing with Paul helped Jarrett develop into the player we’re seeing. Jarrett cut me off:
“Nah, he ain’t got sh-t to do with it.”
